rixdorfer jazz-salon, 4. September 2008, 20:30 Uhr: Bob Rutman 'Bow Chimes'
Bob Rutman `Bow Chimes´. “Im Gegenteil erforschen Rutmans Musik-Performances in vielen Momenten eher die Stille vor dem Knall, den Moment der Anspannung, bevor eine hoch aufgetürmte, vibrierende wall of sound mit lautem Krachen zusammenbricht …” (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
Bob Rutman was born 1931 in Berlin. Immigrated to the US when he was 19. In the 60s he founded a gallery in NY where he developed the prototypes for his Steel Cello and Bow Chimes. 1975 founded the Steel Cello Ensemble. 1990 returned to Berlin, where he currently lives. Worked together with various artists such as Peter Sellars, Merce Cunningham, Einstürzende Neubauten, Robert Wilson, Wim Wenders, Dorothy Carter, FM Einheit as well as many others. He is a musician, painter, instrument builder, sculptor and inventor of sounds. —- “Mr. Rutman’s instruments … can be as mellow as French horns, as deeply resonant as the long ritual horns associated with Tibetan Buddhism, or as metallic and menacing as the sound of an approaching bomber squad.” (The New York Times) —- “Unearthly! It summons outer-space images and cosmic musings.” (The Boston Globe) —- “A combination of sculpture, musical instruments and compositions is innovative and exciting to experience. … They represent a new stream of blending of contemporary music with the visual arts.” (Barbara Lambert, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston)
